    To case or not to case?

    I have a used Casetronic mini ITX-2677R case that I am using for a Epia M10000. I need help deciding if I should keep the case or ditch it. I like the case alot but it won't fit where I planned to put it (glove box). Also the case is too big to house my Opus Power supply so I would have to mod it to get the power cables inside. I could do this and put the case in the trunk (will subs mess with this?) or I can ditch the case and put the computer behind the screen in the front. What do you all think?

    if the subs are close to the case they might mess things up becasue of the magnetic field. i say if u can fit it all behind the screen do it makes averything look clean.

    sub's won't do nothing to it unless the case is within 8 inches of the sub's magnet and you have over 500 watts going in to your sub's

    Hum, ok I'll see if I can fit it. The only thing is that might seat's have a storage bin under them. Maybe I can remove it. Good idea though.

    Why not put it in the bin?

    Edit: The computer, I mean.

    Edit2: In the storage bin!!!

    The bin is too small. It holds 1 kilo...or so it says.
